Breckenridge, Colorado is a great place to elope!

Breckenridge is one of my all-time favorite places to photograph. Every time I leave there, I feel rejuvenated and excited by how beautiful it is and how grateful I am to live near somewhere that spectacular. There are beautiful snow-kissed peaks and gorgeous rivers and lakes. In Breck, you can feel as bougie as you want, but you can also be a hippie and retreat to the beautiful forests. I highly recommend Breck as an elopement spot. You can view my guide to eloping in Breck here.
